What made a failed Austrian artist into the most reviled and destructive personality of the twentieth century? Where did the seeds of his rabid anti-Semitism lie? How did a marginalized loner become such a moving force in Germany? How could a nation have fallen for such a fanatic? What made him so determined to bring about war?
Through manipulation of politicians and civilians, bullying, diplomacy, violence and lies, Hitler achieved a total and unlikely power. Covering his early life, military service in World War One and eventual rise to power, first as the leader of the Nazi party, and then head of state, Hitler: History in an Hour describes the life of a man who spent his final days inside a bunker having plunged the world into a global conflict, the bloodiest in history.

Quotes

    Xuraman Memmedovahas quoted3 years ago
    Mein Kampf Hitler wrote of his parents: ‘I had honoured my father but loved my mother.’
    Xuraman Memmedovahas quoted3 years ago
    On 22 April, with news that the Russians were in Berlin, Hitler finally knew that the war was lost. ‘I cannot command anymore,’ he cried, ‘the war is lost. But if you gentlemen think I am going to leave Berlin you are making a very big mistake. I’d rather blow my brains out.’
    Xuraman Memmedovahas quoted3 years ago
    Although in 1942 Hitler said ‘I am certainly not a brutal man by nature’, he cared little for the individual – the State was everything, and the individual, even a German, was insignificant. ‘If we don’t win then even as we go down we will take half the world with us,’ he said on the eve of war. While Churchill, whom Hitler once called ‘a Jew-besotted, half-American drunkard’, made great efforts to visit the victims of German bombs, Hitler never visited his people during their hour of need, not wanting to be associated with failure. Nor did he visit his wounded soldiers for fear of appearing sentimental
